Work Experience


We have a limited number of opportunities for students from local Universities or those who live locally.

16 + and further education in partnership with local colleges:

Further education students should speak to their careers department who liaise with us to arrange work experience.

Work experience Under 16’s:

Much of our work requires individuals to be over 16 and preferably over 18. On that basis we are unfortunately unable to offer work experience to students in high school.

  • “I found my week at Ridley & Hall highly valuable. I built upon my research skills which I feel will be useful throughout the course of university and further employment. Moreover, sitting in on meetings, experiencing what they entail, and the preparation required was a very helpful insight into a career in law. This week has solidified my intention of pursuing a degree in law which will hopefully entail a career in law. I would like to thank everybody at Ridley & Hall for being so welcoming, friendly and helpful. I feel I have gained a very valuable insight for which I am very grateful.”
  • “This week has been an exciting and informative experience into how an office works and what goes on in a law firm. From the very start we enjoyed meeting new people and learning about their roles. We always felt welcomed and everybody we met was very friendly which helped us to settle in quicker and feel more at ease within the office. As far as the environmental aspects of the office went, we were impressed with all the things Ridley & Hall have been doing to try to reduce their negative environmental impact. We would both like to thank everybody at the firm, especially Tracey and Abbie for providing us with this valuable experience and giving up your time to help us.”
  • “The two days of work experience I had felt like they were organised to make things easy for me and I really appreciate that people have taken the time to show me things and answer questions. Going to court was such a highlight and writing the attendance notes felt like I did something useful in return.”
